Slide 1Quoting, Paraphrasing, & Summarizing Objective: Students will be able to identify the differences between quotation, paraphrase, and summary. Slide 2 Quoting, paraphrasing, and summarizing are writing techniques that allow you to use another authors work in your research. Citing others works adds credibility to your work and provides support for your ideas. To get started, lets read the following short article found in the April 2006 issue of USA Today Magazine on page 10. Slide 3 Slide 4 Using Quotations Quotations must be used if you are taking something directly (word for word) from the information source. be attributed to the original author. From the article, you like the sentence that says: However, body art is going mainstream and growing in popularity, particularly among young people. Slide 5 So in your project/paper, you will incorporate that sentence. According to an article found in the USA Today Magazine, body art is going mainstream and growing in popularity, especially among young people (Tattoo, Bling Craze Raises Hiring Issues 10). Notice: quotation marks are used around words directly borrowed from the article The in-text citation tells the reader where the quote originated Slide 6 Using Paraphrasing Paraphrasing Putting information from a source into your own words It is the same length or slightly shorter than the original source Must still give credit to the original source (of the ideas) For this example, lets try paraphrasing the following section: Slide 7 Our Paraphrase Just 10 years ago, people in charge of hiring would have placed resumes of people with visible tattoos and body piercings in the discard pile. Today, that policy has changed. A significant percentage of younger generation employees have tattoos or other body marks (Tattoo, Bling Craze Raises Hiring Issues 10). Notice that youve put the thoughts from the original snippet into your own words. Using the same words and phrases and just rearranging them is plagiarism and a serious offense. Slide 8 Direct Plagiarism Ten years ago, (1) most job search authorities would have said that tattoos would have eliminated you from possible contention for a position. (2) Times have changed. (3) More than one-third of the younger generation (4) now sport tattoos. This is direct plagiarism. The text in red has been taken directly from the article. 1 2 4 3 Slide 9 Summarizing Restate the main points of a source in your own words Must cite the original source You must condense the information source into a few sentences For this example, lets try summarizing the entire article. Lets look at it again. Slide 10 Our Summary This article quotes John A. Challenger, a chief executive officer for an outsourcing firm, on his views about tattoos and other body art. He believes that times have changed and that companies will have to become more accepting of body art if they want to hire young people. However, he recommends that job seekers find out about a future employers acceptance of body art when interviewing for a position (Tattoo, Bling Craze Raises Hiring Issues 10). Slide 11 Summing Up Quoting, paraphrasing, and summarizing are all important skills to use when writing research papers. Using other peoples information provides support and credibility to your research. Use quotation marks if you are copying word for word. Use paraphrasing to put the thoughts of the author into your own words. Use a summary to describe the main points of an information source. In all forms (quoting, paraphrasing, or summarizing) YOU MUST, also, include an in-text citation!
